msb-0260 What Is This? MacBreak Tech?

msb-0260 What Is This? "MacBreak Tech"? [ ]


Feedback comes first, so...

Your safe. There isn't any ...

Except from a band, "Dead Leaf Echo"

They dropped me an email about their new album.

As soon as its on the PMN you'll get a few tracks because they're a really, well, I don't want to tar them with an inadequate epiteth.

They have really complex melodies intertwined with some solid rhythms and some fairly good vocals.

I'm reminded of the sixties ("Tangerine Dream", [ ] maybe, sort of, they're hard to slot,) when I listen to "Cry the sea."

"Tough Talk" is another good tunes and its even available on their My Space page [ ].

"Poison Lips" is still a very good indie recording and its still available on the page.

Feed Forward comes next, so...

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

Share with other MSers whatever "you" want to share.

Drop me an email: "charles at"

Feed Me comes third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

In a change of pace for my listeners (all of whom must be heaving a sigh of relief [Nah. They'd just "not" be my listeners, {I'm no Howard Stern or Rush Limbaugh, who people listen to even when they hate them,}]) and in a move reminiscent of Kenji Kato "we now join a conversation already in progress."


---- "Lightening Over Cheyenne" by: "Dave McCormick"


... I've just bought "Dragon Naturally Speaking" to transcribe the shows and, when it arrives and I'll let it loose after I've installed it on the PC (I basically own several Macs and a couple of Linux boxen.)

Until then... You're screwed.

Come back later and the text will follow this.

Well, I hope you envoy Shauna MacKinnon.

I'm hoping that she joins my little train wreck of a podcast on a regular basis.

The podcast would definitely change. (For the better... I know my limitations. :-)

Red Hat or Suse?

Ubuntu on my cheapo everex box and Slackware (amongst others,) on my DynIP-d server box.


I'm pretty pissed off at Apple since Friday.

OS X 10.5.1 was great and I've got a mirror of it on a 160GB drive. (I keep all my data on a 1TB LaCie drive.[Backing that sucker up is a pain in the dongle. I've got a DVD driver and an old spare PowerBook G4 to handle it.])

Damn good thing too cause Apple screwed the pooch with the 10.5.2 upgrade and my Samson USB C01U mike doesn't work with GarageBand anymore.

Something seems to be not quite copacetic with the CoreAudio set up so whenever I record my shows, I have to switch to the old OS running off the mirror and reboot.

It works but its a bit of a pain.
